It’s not just you — a study by Healthline found that when it comes to health and finances, not only do 44% of people think the holidays are “somewhat stressful”…
18% of them classified them as “very stressful”!
The good news? You can conquer both areas – you just need a roadmap.
Thriving Through the Holidays Checklist:
- Make your plans TODAY.
If you love last-minute shopping, leave a couple of small things undone, but get all the big things handled ASAP … and make packing or organizing lists if your holidays involve travel or entertainment.
- Make time for movement EVERY DAY, no excuses.
This will help you destress, sleep better, and boost your energy, metabolism, and immune system.
- Eat till you’re satisfied (not stuffed!).
Decide NOW that this will be your plan of action!
- But still enjoy the “worth it” favorite holiday treats.
- Make time for sleep.
A rested body & mind = better mood, less stress, and more vibrant health.
- Go outside for some fresh air and sunshine every day.
This is a proven stress-buster!
- Create a fallback plan.
Things will go sideways at some point. But when you have a plan, you won’t stress out when it happens.
When you boil your to-do lists down to the actions that really make a difference – and eliminate the things that don’t – it’s amazing how much you can accomplish…
WITHOUT the stress.
